You shouldn't attach sensitive configuration files with passwords for 
your servers. I recommend you change those passwords.

I don't know why postgresql isn't working for you, but if that's the 
case some error should be yielded either to the screen or the logs. Are 
you able to create database entries using other horde applications?

As for the backends.php, you really shouldn't make changes to this file, 
but create other file called backends.local.php and add just what you 
need in that file, as described at the beginning of backends.php.

bakcends.php will be overwritten on every update.

Also, why have you entered configuration paramaters for 'pop' and 
'advanced' servers? I've noticed they are disabled, so it doesn't 
matter. By why changing them in the first place? They are just examples 
and in most cases you will want to enable just one of the servers, like 
the "imap" server.

I don't think just complaining will get you very far. This is definitely 
not the way of seeking for help. It would be much more helpful if you 
provided log error messages instead.
